apologize for that. if you will, sir. >> sure, what i was saying is unfortunately, the obama administration has not made it a priority to prosecute felons who try to illegally purchase guns. in 2010, over 15,000 felons and funneltives tried to illegally purchase a gun an were turned down. out of those 15,000, the obama justice department prosecuted just 44. let me repeat the numbers. 15,000 felons and funneltives illegally trying to purchase a gun, the obama justice department only prosecuted 44. i'm introducing legislation to create a task force in the department of justice. we need to prosecute violent felons and fugitives and we need to go after them to protect ourselves against violent crime. we shouldn't be stripping away the second amendment right to keep and bear arms of lawful, peaceful citizens. >> lou: senator reid, the majority lead, called for a cloture vote at 11:00 tomorrow morning. you and a number of your colleagues also said you would filibuster should the need arise. is your sense that the need will arise? are you still committed to a filibuster of gun control legislation?
phase of the case begins. the very complex legal process. an obama administration official telling nbc news tsarnaev will not be given a miranda warning when he's physically able to be interrogated after receiving medical treatment. instead, the official says the government will invoke a legal rule known as the public safety exception. that will allow investigators to question tsarnaev without first advising him of his right to remain silent and be afforded legal counsel. president obama used his weekly address today to praise law enforcement and those involved in tracking tsarnaev down. >> americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain, the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity, and love. >> authorities caught up with the suspect after a tip from a watertown resident. he was hiding in a boat parked outside a home. he is now in a boston hospital and nbc's ron allen is joining me from there. ron, with a good afternoon to you, let's get the very latest on his condition. are you getting word
, or even any more likely to be suspicious as bad people. by the way, the bad guys, the obama administration has dramatically increased deportations as you know of the real criminals who we tend to be able to find and deport when necessary. >> mr. walsh? >> jonathan, these two guys, jonathan, these two guys weren't just losers. they were part of radical islam. they were radicalized. >> that's right. >> this is a threat we've known has existed for a number of years. >> it has nothing to do with the immigration bill. it's irrelevant. it's not being rushed through as you said. the bill has been pending for white a whi quite a while. >> jonathan, it's sophisticated mindsets like yours that get americans killed because you don't recognize we're at war. >> joe, i think i can call you joe now since you're not in congress anymore. you know, that's kind of -- that's the kind of level of debate saying it's people like you who cause us to be hit by terrorists. that's what lowers the whole tenner of the conversation. makes it very hard to have reasonable, good policy-making. the emotion you apply to the
you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very
preview of the secret agenda you can expect in a second obama administration. in first term i sang al green. in my second term, i'm going with yung jeezy. >> weez s'll see what he does. conan o'brien, the listed funny man. president obama will get a few laughs as well and i will be live from d.c. next weekend, next saturday night, for the play-by-play of the white house correspondents dinner. >>> major flooding in the midwest. dozens of rivers overnid. the mississippi risen ten feet in 36 hours. live to illinois. >>> and old the older tsarnaev brother spent his time. you're watching msnbc, the pla is for politics. >>> family to me is the most important thing. >> when me and my family get together, it's absolute chaos. clusters of pustules, pimples. the soreness was excruciating. it was impossible to even think about dancing. when you're dancing, your partner is holding you. so, his hand would have been right in the spot that i had the shingles. no tango. no rhumba. you can't be touched. for more of the inside story, visit shinglesinfo.com >>> there was a moment of silence at the londo
. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound to the throat but he is responding to some questions to a team the federal investigators in writing. any indication as to what he is saying or maybe perhaps just what they are trying to get out of him at
house official says the obama administration has been briefed on the situation. they continue monitoring local and state response through the federal emergency management agency. in addition to tending to those who have been injured, officials are concerned about the possibility of a secondary explosion. a texas state official gave a briefing early this morning and said that, quote, there are still active ingredient there's. and that the fire continued to burn. with active ingredients, we can only assume he means dangerous chemicals that could lead to a secondary explosion. to the force of that blast. it was felt, reportedly, as far as 70 miles away. our own charles hadlock, was 60 miles away at the time. and he felt that explosion. and one official who got an opportunity to survey some of the damage said it was massive. the damage was massive. it looked just like iraq. and looked just like the oklahoma city bombing. that's how severe that damage was. again, residents have been told to evacuate from nearby areas. and those who are in the area who have not evacuated are being told to stay
. there's a possibility it also brings them together. a week ago, president obama's administration put the president of chechnya, accused of human rights abuses, on a secret list of people not allowed to come to the united states that angered the kremlin. it angered vladimir putin, his ally. now they have in some ways, a common enemy if there's a connection at all to the broader chechen radical movement. >> peter baker, white house correspondent for "the new york times," thank you so much for your time. >>> i want to bring in wnbc's jonathan ,b├Ędienst. we're getting news that terror suspect, tamerlan tsarnaev who was killed in a shootout this morning is reportedly flew in and out of john f. kennedy last year and was out of the country for six months. investigators do not know if tsarnaev received any terror training while he was overseas, but it adds another piece to this evolving puzzle. >> that's the question they want to ask, what he was he doing overseize, he does have relatives in russia and he flew in and out of the country, back to kennedy airport, he flew out of new york on ja
to the department of defense for the obama administration. jay, good to see you again, thank you very much for being with us. you have been involved in so many of these issues. we wanted to talk to you, about your take-away about enemy combatant. judicial decisions in a number of cases can you clarify how long can this exception from your wisdom last. is it the point the arrest. or the point of communication? >> well first of all, it's important to remember that any time dangerous criminal, suspect, is arrested for terrorist acts, our first impulse when that suspect is from a foreign land or is of a certain religion, should not be a reach for the military. the military is not the only answer here. and i warned about that in office, the possibility of over militarization of our common terrorism efforts, it's a whole government effort. second, the notion of designating the suspect as an enemy combatant, i'm not even sure is legal. in this situation. to be part of the enemy force in the congressionally authorized armed conflict from 2001, the suspect would need to be either part of al qaeda or an assoc
to handle him as what they describe as an enemy combat talent. the obama administration doesn't use that term anymore it allows for an indefinite detention of someone under national security concerns. that's what they are hoping for. we will see what the justice department decides, they haven't yet. but certainly, this issue will find its way to washington. there are various house and senate committees that have already said they plan to investigate exactly issues leading up to this explosion and then the subsequent manhunt and investigation and surely those concerned about how the administration handles him in the coming days. no surprise that this group has already said that they would like this because they say frankly, this is what it's for. you find a terrorist on u.s. soil, this is how they should be treated. democrats this after the into, some have already turned around and said, look, the administration is doing just fine on this, this san american citizen, he has to be afforded his rights, the justice department is acting a i appropriate. >> adrian, our pete williams is rep
thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
hospitals, and president obama has opinion notified. the administration is monitoring this situation via fema which is in contact with state and local officials in texas. here's waco police sergeant patrick swanson just a short time ago. >> there is a significant area around the fertilizer plant that has been destroyed. homes have been destroyed and there are homes flattened and part of that community is gone. >> nbc's charles hadlock is live in the small town of west, texas. charles, what are people saying so far? what's the latest? >> reporter: they say it's a very tedious process, but they are still holding out hope that they will find survivors in the rubble that is left in the northern part of west, texas. the plant itself is on the northeast corner of town, and it exploded last night after fire broke out about 7:30. about 7:45 the fire chief realized the fire was getting out of control. he order his men out, and seven minutes later the whole building exploded. jill jenkins was a triage nurse. she was one of the first ones to arrive on the scene. here's what she had to say. >> when
are you hearing from the top? >> reporter: good evening, rachel. senior administration officials tell me president obama will continue to be briefed on this situation throughout the evening. right now, the white house is approaching this as an act of terror. i can read you the latest statement that we have from a senior administration official, rachel. i believe we have a graphic of that as well. this is according to an official who says, "any event with multiple explosive devices as this appears to be is clearly an act of terror and will be approached as an act of terror. however, we don't yet know who carried out this attack and a thorough investigation will have to determine whether it was planned and carried out by a terrorist group, foreign or domestic." now, i can tell you, rachel, that is really the key question here tonight. was this carried out by a terrorist group homegrown, or a foreign terrorist group? and, rachel, the white house just simply does not know. i've heard you sort of discussing this as well. there's still a lot of questions about who is responsible for what happe
of president bush and his anti-terror policies. in the days and years since the first strikes, president obama is estimated to have ordered five times as many drone strikes as the bush administration. and although the strikes have been credited with decimating al qaeda, they've also been executed entirely in secret and without judicial oversite. a policy that differs significantly with what the president has told the american people. >> i am not somebody who believes that the president has the authority to do whatever he wants or whatever she wants whenever they want, just under the guise of counterterrorism. >> today's hearings will address proposals to increase their transparency. for a president who voted against the wars in iraq and won the nobel peace prize, his policy on drones have come as a surprise to many. the president's hawkishness has not been universal. that was apparent this week when the president ignored calls from gop hawks to hold a suspect of the boston bombings, dzhokhar tsarnaev, as an enemy combatant and said, dzhokhar, an american citizen. will be given full rights and
